              I am not feeling well today. I am really tired of indonesian maids and nannies. When we wanted to move to Indonesia we were told that: Indonesia is better place than Singapore to live for expats, because they can have baby sitter, nanny, driver,... in a cheap price. Now I found that it not advantage. It is just something common here to hire household staff. I was wondering such a large muslem community how can lie easily? In praying time they are in a hurry to pray. It is maybe just a habit! Running to pray! As I know telling lie is a kind of sin in Islam, I am shocked with their ability and high imagination to tell lie to their employers. Every year in Idul fitri holidays our driver is in hospital! His wife sends me s.ms! I got used to that when a maid/nanny wants to come for interview, just in time I got a message:" Saya sakit"!. On weekend the rate of being sick(sakit) goes high.They come and go.They don,t have commitment to their job. Suddenly when the kids get used to them they say:" I am going to Java now but I will be back soon"!. I want to name Java the second bermuda triangle. I know they will disappeared in Java and there will be no news of them.I am thinking of invisible costs for spending time to teach them cooking,using home appliances,... . Many people in other countries don,t have household staff. Maybe they enjoy life more than us!

                No law here that says you have to hire household staff. Since you have done the training so many times, looks like you can take care of the job by yourself with less headaches and save some rupiah.

                  Thank you all so much, @lone, I am done with the formal education system to be honest.
                  I sorta did zero work whatsoever in my final year and never even handed in my dissertation so that explains why I am
                  A: late getting my results
                  and
                  B: in shock that I did it anyway.

                  @emonan, life is treating me well it is not without its ups and downs- I am still breathing, smoking and eating - hit the town last night and saw a great band. Those are on the plus side.
                  On the down side, one of my friend's kids just overdosed (well was given too much medicine by her mom).
                  Am just sat waiting for a ride... that sums up my life in Java-> waiting for a ride.

                  I am with Pimpin on this, your post comes across as though you are spoilt or a whiner, I am sure you are neither and just needed to offload a bit, teach your kids by example how to be a good parent- by parenting them yourself... they are far too precious to dump with a nanny.
                  Teach the kids how to clean too- it is always good in this sweet life if you are able to clean your own cr*p up. Why leave it for someone else?
                  Please don't use work as an excuse.
                  Women are able to multi-task- it is what has kept the human race ticking over for a fair few years

                            ha if you have been used to live without maid and nanny, then there should be no issues for you if they somehow disappeared in that bermuda triangle
                            it's a normal thing .. , cant expect them to be perfect slave, they are human ....

                              from what i read of mina_h's post, nowhere did she imply she required them to be perfect and/or slave. if i hire someone in whatever position, i would expect them to be committed to doing their job. being 'human' shouldn't excuse you from the lack of work ethics and common decency.

                                bow, i was being bitter ....i feel her frustration too.... my mum's maid did the same thing .... she said that she would be back after lebaran, then she came 2 weeks aft lebaran, and said that she would only be there for 3 days, since her nephew's cousin will get marry. and her ability to cook will be needed for a seven days wedding celebration. and when my mom mentioned about 'why oh why did you do that..' and she did that quite a lot.
                                she replied, 'am just human mam , can't expect me to be your slave the whole year....'
                                PS: but she has been working for us for more than 8 years. she's a good worker, good cook, good with my 95 years old grandma, but she willtake leave once in 2 months .. for about a week or two.. so i feel Mina's frustration..
